Reviewed 28 May 2011

The Hotel Le Jolie is truly Brooklyn's crowning jewel of hotels. The outside is unimpressive, but inside is painstakingly clean & comfortable. Continental breakfast, double paned windows for noise reduction, amazing views of Manhattan's skyline, great location, & wonderful service make this hotel top of the line. Rooms are small, not really conducive to "hanging out" but the quiet & the bedding make up for that. After a long day sightseeing & walking, it was the perfect respite. The staff goes above & beyond. If you don't see what you need from their website, emailing them gets almost immediate response. We would definitely stay here again, and again.

Room Tip: Ask for the best view of Manhattan skyline

Our son has lived in Williamburg for 10 years and this is where we now stay during every visit.
Although he actually has his own place now (no roomates) and could easily accomodate us, we spoil ourselves with out stays here.

We have stayed at the Hotel Le Jolie close to 10 times in the past 3 years. Our daughter lives in Williamsburg,Brooklyn, and we can easily walk to her apartment our the subway stop. My Wife and I are in our early 60's and have never felt any intimation walking the neighborhood day or night. All of the staff is kind, warm and helpful. It does not matter if it is the front desk personal, the housekeeper staff, or the breakfast staff. They are all happy to see you as a guest at the Hotel. If you drive they have parking on site for free. Plus you are close to the Highway. The rooms are small but the beds are very comfortable and the outside noise is minimal.

Room Tip: We book online at the hotel site.

After searching through dozens of reviews for hotels in Manhattan that cost an arm and a leg and still got poor scores, I came across "Le Jolie" in Brooklyn. After some consideration, I decided that this could be a good alternative, and I did not regret my decision.

The Hotel was decently clean (not immaculate perhaps, but perfectly acceptable) and comfortable. The room was on the small side, but had a good television and other basic amenities. As I was using this as a base for exploration in Manhattan, the size was not an issue anyway. Wireless internet access was included for free.

I did not have a huge amount of contact with the staff, but I found them to be polite and helpful. Checkin and checkout were quick and efficient.

If you are fussy about noise, you might want to consider asking for a room on the side away from the expressway, as it is quite close by and you can hear the traffic at night. It did not cause me any problems sleeping though. Similarly, the A/C was a bit noisy but I did not find this to be a problem. So far all three US hotels I have visited on this trip had the same noisy A/C, so maybe it is common over here.

Breakfast was the usual style for this kind of hotel in the US: Some bread, spreads, pastries, cereal, coffee and fruit. Nothing too fancy, but serviceable and ours was included in the price. There were a number of restaurants within walking distance.

The area around the hotel was a little run down, but it felt safe enough to walk around the nearby streets. Five minutes walk will take you to the subway and a few minutes journey to Manhattan. Williamsburg is also within walking distance, and there you can find plenty to eat and drink. If you fancy a long walk, you can walk all the way over the Williamsburg Bridge and on to Delancey Street.

You may think my description above is a little negative considering the title, but "Le Jolie" compares well to the alternatives. If you are looking for a top-class, international quality hotel in the middle of town then look elsewhere and be prepared to pay a lot higher prices. If, however, you are looking for a decent, comfortable hotel at a reasonable price and within easy travelling distance of the city, and with a bit of character then I would definitely recommend "Le Jolie"

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the expressway side maybe

The free parking adjacent to the hotel enables ready access to your car at all times. A short ride over the Williamsburg Bridge to 2nd Avenue and off you go for a day in the Big Apple. At the end of the day, return to a clean room, TV, and a very comfortable bed for a guiet night's sleep. In the morning, after a hot shower and a complimentary continental breakfast, you are ready for another day in the City or points east on Long Island.

Enjoyed the whole process of getting our rooms for a three night stay Le Jolie. Very nice people, good service from start to finish. Rooms were clean and well kept. Location for sightseeing, visiting our relative in the area and seeing a new side of Brooklyn was just perfect. We had a great stay.
